CHAMBER OF COMMERCE NEW
BY CAROLYN S. HOFFMAN INDIAN WELLS CHAMBER
LAUNCHES NEW STRATEGIC PLAN The Indian Wells Chamber of Commerce is launching a new
strategic plan and introducing a new board of directors. The strategic planning seminar was facilitated by Indian Wells City Manager Greg Johnson. A SWOT analysis was conducted to gain insight into factors that may be driving or influencing the Chamber. The Board identified and analyzed internal strengths and weaknesses and external opportunities and threats. These factors provided the framework for the organization’s new vision. At the recent Chamber mixer hosted by Morton’s Restaurant, newly
elected Chairman of the Board Keith Brinson shared with members the Chamber’s vision. “We have right here in our own Chamber every resource we need to promote our local businesses in this challenging economy,” said Brinson. “The top four most critical issues identified by the SWOT analysis
are to promote local businesses, improve finances, expand our growth and membership retention and continue to develop our leadership,” explained Chamber CEO Ruth Finholt. “The day was exception. The Board members are excited and have already begun to execute the information on a monthly basis. We see only success in the Chamber’s future,” she added. The newly elected board members are: Keith Brinson, chairman;
Corey Allen, treasurer; Sharon Devine, secretary; Roy Furguson, Greg Fisher, John Hussar, Denise Kramer, past chair; Daniel Levine, Al Liebman, Kristi Prieto, Ron Salute, Tom Viscounty, and Valerie Ward.
